my CFs goes right in the garbage...efff them if they insist upon requiring these ......

I buy them on sale and they do save me money on power...which is my only reason for buying them...

we need to look towards Germany....when incandescent bulbs were banned there...some clever entrepreneurs re marketed them as small heaters...(kind of like you would use in a poultry incubator)....I dont use incandescent bulbs that much, but I do demand the govt keeps their hands off of them....

That's where the one I accidentally broke went, to their credit, I haven't had one actually die yet and I've been using them for a couple of years. I use them in some areas of my house but in others, it will always be the good old 100 watt old style. I'm well on my way to having a life time supply and like every other conservative here, I detest government telling me what kind of bulbs I must use.

OTH, I have two wall lamps in one hall way that have the same 75 watt bulbs in them since I moved in almost 20 years ago.
